A grimly exciting war drama about the Czech resistance's plot to kill Reinhard Heydrich, deputy chief of the Gestapo and better known as Hitler's "Hangman". This is drily, if expertly, directed by
Reach for the Sky
veteran Lewis Gilbert, and features a motley cast including American Timothy Bottoms and a particularly excellent Anthony Andrews as Czech patriots.

Fact-based Second World War drama about the assassination of leading Nazi Reinhard Heydrich and the subsequent search for the British-trained Czech patriots who killed him. As German forces scoured the countryside, the apparently insignificant village of Lidice came to bear the brunt of their rage. Starring Timothy Bottoms, Martin Shaw, Joss Ackland, Nicola Pagett, Anton Diffring and Anthony Andrews.
